%. my next guest says the obama administration is punishing job producers and subsidizing a withdrawal from the work force. joining us now, one of the country's most thoughtful, provocative political an economic tinkers, author george gilder who wrote the best seller, wealth and poverty, and a seminal rk in it is great to have you with us. somepeople upon closer inspection, it is not good news and people are leaving the work force. >> it sure isn't. we are paying people to leave the workforce. some $1 trillion offpayments of various kinds to keep people from working and to break up their families and to demoralize their earnest. it is -- it ignores the elephant in the room which is a massiveve depaure of the prime age man from the work force. it is accelerating today. and part of this is being subsidiz by the government through record disability payments. lou: disabilit payments from social security administration, taking thaaside when one looks at food stamps and medicaid alone, you can add other incentives as well and support programs, but we are looking at the prospect of having one
use of chemical weapons. one official in the obama administration told cnn there are worrying signs that syria may be considering the use of such weapons against rebels. new this morning, this mayor of this town along the border with turkey told cnn that jets dropped two bombs wounding several people. >>> it is 18 minutes past the hour. we are getting an early read on your local news making national headlines this story from "the boston globe." a year after the paper found that stores and restaurants across massachusetts were intentionally mislabeling fish. guess what? the practice continues. dna testing shows some business are showing cheaper, lower quality fish instead of what is written on the label. in one case, slices of what were supposed to be white tuna at a sushi shop were an oily species of fish that can cause digestive issues. that's terrible. >>> the "new york times," this story got so much attention locally here and around the nation. the homeless man who received a pair of shoes from a selfless police officer. reporters caught up with him on the upper west side and his
. the obama administration skated the plan to put black boxes in every new car. this is an invasion of privacy, and fox news legal analysts says it is 100% legal. mercedes, to their point, administration's point would ascertain the reason hind an accident and if we had this with the toyota cars, the brakes going, going off cliffs, whatever was going on, we could have resolved it legally long beforehand; right? >> what a great idea. so maay individuals either use the cars inappropriately, speeding down the road, breaking, not paying attention, didn't belt in, and suddenly, there's something that records all of that activity that can say, wait a minute, it's not the product. it's the manner in which the product was used. it's going to save lotsf money for the corporations who create the cars, two, it can provide insight as to whether there's criminality. someone speeding down the road at 120-130 miles per hour -- neil: that's the creepy part to me. >> 100% big brother, monitor everything you do, every road you're on, every place you're at, whether you have your seat belt on, whether you're intox
ambassadorships for years. neil: on both sides. >> obama administration has put more political ambassadors in than prior republican administraons. now is that good or bad? it is good. the political ambassadors have a direct connection with the president, in countries where they are acredited, if they say, this is at the president wants that is believable. and their loyalty is to the president not state department. and they care a lot in my experience about making sure that president's policies are carriee out. and third, and look -- >> would see? >> no anna wintour from a cord of wood, but i do know she knows something about business,. neil: you support this? >> i don'tnow her. >> i think if it was france it would be perfect. with the style. i don't see a problem. >> i don't but i think that in advocating american business against european ambassadors who spend a consider an poke of theiportion their time on it cod someone in business themselves can be effective. neil: no doubt. we were talking about. joe kennedy, -- john kennedy's father got the ambassadorship to england to get off of fdr's back
in the war itself. it's a difficult challenge. >> we understand the obama administration is now considering arming the syrian rebels, something you've advocated for a long time. obviously in reaction to concerns the administration won't have any sway with the rebels should the assad regime fall. arwa damon has been inside syria for more than about a week now. she's been talking to rebels who say they're angry at the international community for its inaction and won't tolerate meddling now. do you think there's anything at this point the u.s., its allies can do to try to repair that relationship? >> i think we could establish a safe zone from which they could organize and operate. the other problem, as you know, is the dramatic infiltration over the last year or so of these jihadists, al qaeda jihadist extremists from all over the arab world. you name a country and they've come in from there. and unfortunately, some of the countries that are providing the weapons, those have gone directly to these extremists. rather than to the moderate forces. and without a place to organize, to set up a gov
on the fact we're not going to raise the rates on anybody at any point. and what the obama administration has made very clear is it's got to be tax rate. well, the republicans are saying, doesn't have to be the tax rate. you can come up with other money closing loopholes and deductions and stuff like that. so right now it's just a dance, somebody's got -- the republicans have to come up with a formal offer. >> gretchen: i was going to say, they don't have a plan. >> steve: we've heard the president's plan. it's crazy, according to the republicans. now it's time for the republicans to come out with a plan and then have the democrats say, no, that's crazy. >> gretchen: one thing is for sure, nobody is going to get everything that they want. that's just the way it is, i think, in this very difficult situation. both sides are going to have to compromise. >> brian: i think the rolling stones sang about satisfaction and you can't always get it. >> steve: you can't get no. >> brian: we'll go over that and maybe sing it. costco is a company in which the president always leans on the ceo, the guy in c
to a kr credible location. >> and the obama administration is saying what the united nations did unilaterally was a setback. do you agree with that? the body i represent is split. some people are in favor of the u.s. vote. the truth of it, the only thing that will work to deliver a palestinian state side-by-side with a secure state of israel is peace. as you can see we have a chance now. the president has been re-elected. i know he's deeply personally committed to this and we just have to regrip it, i'm afraid. >> what's gone wrong? >> it's partly because there's so much turmoil in the region right now. it's how each side views its own prospects. >> how would you characterize a credible negotiation given the fact as long as we've been alive there's been these problems that keep erupting and never, ever get solved? we've been trying for 20, 30 years. it was 50, 60 years before we got one that worked. and actually back in the year 2000, and again in 2008, you have no option in the end. the only thing that works is to make it credible if we shape the negotiations. give it some shape
's right. house republicans say there will be no deal if tax ritz go up and the obama administration says it's ready to go thelma and louise style over the cliff on january 1. if that's the case, wendell goler live at the white house with what we know is going on behind the scenes. anything happening? >> steve, the president and house speaker john boehner talked on the phone yesterday, but they agreed not to characterize their conversation. so it's unclear how much progress they made. from the outside, it does seem they've moved a bit closer with boehner now agreeing to raise tax collection from the wealthy, though not by raising tax rates. >> we've got to cut spending and i believe to put revenues on the table. the revenues we're putting on the table will come from, guess who, the rich! there are ways to limit deductions, close loopholes, and have the same people pay more of their money to the federal government without raising tax rates which we believe will harm our economy. >> the president lobbied big business leaders yesterday with an appearance at the business round table. his aide
about the location of osama bin laden. >> reporter: the controversy? the obama administration has faced accusations it gave undeserved access to the filmmakers. in real life, everyone involved in the hunt for bin laden remains sworn to secrecy. but the filmmakers say they got firsthand accounts. they just won't say exactly how that happened. >> i think as a reporter you would understand we take prot t protecting our sources and sort of the exact methodology of our sourcing pretty seriously, just in the same way if i asked you how did you source that story. >> katherine, when you hear mark talk this way, are you a journalist or a filmmakerer? >> that's a good question. well, i certainly tried to be as faithful to the research as possible and make a good movie and make a film that was timely. >> reporter: but how much access they got is the issue. >> obviously things went wrong here. >> reporter: congressman peter king, chairman of the house homeland security committee first called for an investigation at both the cia and the pentagon. >> there was an event where operatives were involved
sorry what was obama trying to do with obama care . why was not not addressed and why is that now on the table. you have to realize it is not a administration that wants to do cuts. >> easy answer to that. if you look at original drafts of what the president was talking about when he started out. he wanted address medicare. >> no. sure he wanted toddress it . we can address that iue f another hour but we are runnin out of the time. did you hear what may be on the table to solve our debt mess? raising the gas tax on everybody. will that make a bigger will that make a bigger financial mess for with the sparkash card from capital one, sven gets great rewards for his small business! how does this thing work? oh, i like it!

and president obama, we have seen a rise in the food stamp program, it is so large it is supporting a large bureaucracy that wants to fuel the growth. four billion in administrative costs. they don't want to lose their jobs either. victoriarings up a point. there is it a industry of bureaucracy that is created around all of these poverty programs. not just food stamps. if you add up all of the poverty programs excluding social security. it comes up to $22000 for every poor person in america. why not just get rid of the bureaucracy and cut them a check. >> we could have a great ide and debate. going back to food stamps and the idea of government promoting that. we have a farm bill that proposes four billion in cuts to the food stamp and the agricultural committee chair woman said they would be more open to cutting back more. >> rich, i see all of the advertising of the government to put people on food stamps and 15 million more people on food stamps after that government program, isn't there a relationship there? >> there is . victoria properly stribes something that you call the welfare ind
that entity, blame, blame, blame. if i look at the first administration of president barack obama, there was a lot of inherentiiting of debt. i'm not saying i agree or disagree. there's many that believe blaming someone else is just a way to shirk leadership. i'll tell you what. here's the problem with the blame game. when blame becomes an issue, it takes the empathy out. it takes the civility out and it green lights sustaining dysfunctional patterns. i'll give you an example. once you start blaming for example, let's take grover norquist. he's good target. once you start blaming grover norquist for a pledge made to get elected by representatives, you are totally doing a bait and switch. all of a sudden the issue of entitlementsbowles. why? they will look straight in the camera and say the gorilla in the room, entitlements. but when the blame game happens and you basically do bait and switch, you create a red herring. in this case, the red herring, and it is red, are tax issues. or taxing the rich even though the real issue you're avoiding, the big one, are the entitlements and th
with the bill. press secretary jay carney said mr. obama is determined to phase out the bush administration tax cuts for families making more than $250,000 a year. >> he will not sign a bill that extends those tax rates for the top 2%. we can't afford it. it is not a wise economic policy or wise fiscal policy. and it would defeat the principle of balance that he has embraced. >> so with less than a month to go before the deadline, we've now had an offer and a counteroffer, but arguably, no real attempt at compromise. democrats say republicans haven't detailed how they would increase tax revenue and they haven't offered enough of it and republicans say democrats haven't agreed to serious entitlement program cuts. steve, gretchen, brian? >> steve: thank you very much, live from the north lawn. ten minutes before the top of the hour. you probably remember the $6 million man. >> wed into to make the world's first bionic man better than he was before. better, stronger, faster. >> steve: our next guest says he can make this a reality, merging man with machine. it does not involve lee majors. >> gretc
lighting, president obama joined the holiday mood. but earlier, visiting a middle class virginia family, he threatened that congress could ruin the christmas season. if it doesn't act, the administration says, middle class tax bills will increase by $2,000. >> we're in the midst of the christmas season. i think the american people are counting on this getting solved. the closer it gets to the brink, the more stress there is going to be. >> reporter: what may raise the stress level even further is the promise that both the president and treasury secretary geithner has made. that is, if tax rates don't rise for top earners, there will be no deal. >> i'm not going to sign any taxes that somehow prevents the top rates from going up for folks at the top 2%. >> if that happens, if there's no agreement, economist mark zandi told a congressional hearing it would be bad news. >> if we go over the cliff and there's no change after that, we hit the gdp in 2013 will be 3.5 percentage points. the economy is growing two percentage point. subtract 3 1/2 and that is a severe recession. >> reporter: republi
